Thought Police Strike Again

~via Island Breezes. When reason is absconded and tolerance only goes one way:
"Lesley-Anne Steeleworthy, who is chairwoman of the board at the women’s centre at the university, said the lecture topic was “anti-choice” and offensive on “a number of levels.”

“It is shocking,” Ms. Steeleworthy said Sunday. “It’s comparing women who want the right to choose to being as evil as Hitler.”

As a result, her group is considering a human rights complaint against the university chaplain for participating in the event. The chaplain is in his first year in the position..."
This happened at St. Mary's University, Halifax, Canada. Note the irony of the uni's name. We're not too far away from this kind of thought policing. Note how these complainers all use the word "offensive" or "offended". It's all about sensibilities.
